Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone that has to be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely dependent to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services during their treatment procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, because the individual can keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in treatment need to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab facility which is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations about just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of preference.
